For once, I am actually looking forward to going down to the JSCEE. Not that I hate it but it's usually for some lengthy meeting. Nope, today I get to see the installation of some new Board members. It is very nice to see some family member standing proudly next to the new Board member. It's a warm, fuzzy feeling and a brief shining moment, the Board stands as one (even if it's just for a photo).
I note that over at Crosscut, they continue their diatribe about the "dysfunctional" School Board (this in an article about the challenges that Murray faces). They call the Board "three disheartened reformers" and the "backlash faction of four members representing union concerns over testing issues and parents who want more direct control." Geez, can you give the new Board a chance and not start Monday-morning quarterbacking from the get-go? And parents, back off, will ya? Apparently you are just supposed to send your kid to school and keep your mouth shut (and yes, raise lots of money for your school).
On a happier note, more good things at Rainier Beach (also from Crosscut). The kids are learning to cook.
What's on your mind?
